We have been walking the river road and enjoying the wild flowers along the way. Everything is so many shades of green and with a flower here and there it is all so beautiful! Thank you God!

This past Sunday night old friends from Bible college came to stay overnight on their way to Cape Cod. Arlene was my personal attendant in our wedding and a dorm mate. She and Vic met at LBI(Lutheran Bible Institute) in 1966, the same year Joel and I met. We all graduated in 1968. They have spent the past 40 plus years in the Fargo/Moorhead Minnesota area. So many couples came out of that two year Bible college that is was called the "Lutheran Bridal Institute"! It was great fun to catch up!!

This past week was spent learning more about hearing God's voice through the Word, teachings, and books. Plus we did more sorting and purging, but not as much as I would have liked because I have still been fighting the infection that is not letting go, even after a second round of antibiotics. The Doc had told me it was a really bad one. My least favorite thing is to go to the doctor, but that is what I've been doing as the UTI battle persists. My next least favorite is taking medications and the antibiotics have taken a toll on me. I am using D-mannose and essential oils too. It will end. Healing will come. It is also interesting to note that this has stirred up o;d fear and anxiety for me. Both the persistent infection and the confusion surrounding hearing God's voice over our own or the enemy's. Thus the need to meditate and study on hearing His voice. When confusion or fear comes to visit, just lean in closer to our Lord.
This Memorial Day weekend we think back on those we love who have gone before us to be with Jesus. Parents, our son Kevin, friends, family members. We remember all the soldiers who have died. We remember all those who serve....
We watched the movie, "50 to 1" last night. Don't bother to rent it or spend the money. It was based on a true story about a horse winning the Kentucky Derby at 50 to 1 odds. The language, partying, and lifestyles of the cowboys in the movie was a turn off for sure. Being it was rated PG-13 we figured it would be ok. We were wrong. We fast forwarded through the yuk and watched til the end.
I am almost finished with Bill Johnson's excellent book, The Supernatural Power of the Transformed Mind. Moving on to finish a book by David Joseph, the Praying Medic, who is from Phoenix. His books on healing are so good. What have you been reading lately?
Until next time..............
